How Europe Underdeveloped Africa

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa
How Europe Underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney

This is the classic account of how European colonial powers underdeveloped Africa. Rodney explores the history of European exploitation of the continent and what it meant then and now in economic terms. If you're interested in this you might also want to read Capitalism and Slavery.

Before a bomb ended his life in the summer of 1980, Walter Rodney had created a powerful legacy. This pivotal work, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, had already brought a new perspective to the question of underdevelopment in Africa. His Marxist analysis went far beyond the heretofore accepted approach in the study of Third World underdevelopment. How Europe Underdeveloped Africa is an excellent introductory study for the student who wishes to better understand the dynamics of Africa s contemporary relations with the West.
